After making the faux enameled stencils, I wanted to try enamel-i-fying something else, just for fun!
I came across this cute little metal bucket at Target for $2.50, and it had to come home with me.
I primed it, and then painted it with Rustoleum spray paint in gloss white.

I saved the image to my computer, and then uploaded it into my Silhouette software. After some manipulations, I was able to cut out the words in vinyl.
I applied the vinyl directly to my bucket…
…and then I used acrylic paint to randomly paint on “chipped” areas on my “enamel” bucket. I sprayed the whole thing with a protective coat in a glossy finish.
And now I have an old, chipped, enamel flower bucket!
I kept thinking of that old commercial that said something like:
“Is it real?? Or is it…Clairol?”
What do you think?
Would it fool YOU?
